With it being summer, I am enjoying a break from my usual makeup routine and scaling back to the basics. But, even now, there are times when I crave a little something more…especially when I have a fun girls night planned or a romantic date with my husband. I’ve always been fond of the smoky eye & this is my current favorite way to do it. By leaving the bottom part of the eye bare (save for mascara), it is elegant & less harsh-looking than the traditional kohl-rimmed look. Take a peek at this example on Sienna Miller:
How to recreate:
1) Line your top lids only with black liquid liner, carefully winging it out & up at the edges slightly.
2) Smudge a metallic gray shadow across your lids & all the way up to the crease, also slightly winging out at the sides.
3) Finish the look by curling your lashes & adding 2 coats of black mascara.
4) Balance out the gray with just a sweep of warm champagne gloss.
